    By popular demand I have shirts now! I picked the super soft, high quality shirts and make $0 on all items which is why they are priced so handsomely :)

    Summary: I built a machine to win an arcade game every time that was super accurate. In doing so I accidently discovered that this arcade game is totally rigged.



    I make videos like this once a month all year long while supplies last:






  • Mark Rober (Jan 3, 2018)

    This was one of those videos that turned out way different than my original plan. It feels good to use scientific rigor to get a definitive answer to something that people often speculate about. Shoutout to pet.t.on and Surfncdog and for guessing the purpose of the machine from a picture on my Instagram. If you want stuff more than once/month, come join me there @markrober!

    Mark skews as kinda queer

  • Smalf00 ' (Feb 20, 2019)

    These vids inspired me to go into cad and engineering like this, I'm not nearly this good yet, but hey, I just started and have no background

  • Jonatan de waele (Dec 17, 2018)

    Cheating on a cheater is just fair play, I wish more people did what you do

  • Jonatan de waele (5 days ago)

    +Luca Watts indeed not, but a crime against a criminal isn't always a bad thing

  • Lots of people do

  • Equestrian 101 (Dec 23, 2018)

    "And pull out your phone, like you're checking dank memes"

  • Chasan Sultamatov (4 days ago)

    _dænk mems_

  • Equestrian 101 (5 days ago)

    thank you peeps for the likes

  • PlasmaFireStar (Dec 19, 2018)

    I like how he was just like, "oh yeah, I built an app specifically for this small project I made"

  • voltare2amstereo (Feb 26, 2019)

    A 555 timer and a variable resistor would have worked too

  • Flowerbud (Jan 26, 2019)

    That's like, beginner level coding

  • Bob Jones (Feb 6, 2019)

    4:55-4:56go in slomo and the jack pot doesn't even shine up

  • Mohsin Mohammad (3 days ago)


  • Ashton Gornez (5 days ago)

    Ur right

  • TommieThangs (Dec 20, 2018)

    Ok I am bingeing his videos now. Wtf?

  • Claire Bear (Dec 25, 2018)

    Haha samee

  • DeezMiZzY (Dec 22, 2018)

    Same ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ;D

  • Vapor Wave - sama (Jan 3, 2018)

    6:37 Kid So you're cheating?Mark: Well, technically...Kid: HE'S CHEATING!!!Mark: Do you want your tickets or not?

  • Brian Yourdan (Mar 7, 2019)

    Can't be cheating if your being cheated on in the first place.

  • Mi (Mar 3, 2019)

    Do they change those tickets to cash or what is the value of those tickets?

  • CrashFu (Dec 18, 2018)

    It's pretty common knowledge at this point, but almost all Prize Cranes work the same way; they're programmed to not actually grip the prizes the majority of times.It's a wonder this sort of thing is even legal, since it's literally Gambling marketed to children, but I guess they must get off on the loop-hole of only offering toys and tickets as prizes... kinda like how Pachinko parlors bypass Japan's gambling laws.

  • Zoe Shern (Feb 24, 2019)

    +Eren Akay yup. Kind of crazy tho a friend of mine won an I pad on one of the new kinds of crane games.

  • Eren Akay (Feb 24, 2019)

    +Zoe Shern r/thathappened

  • LetLetG (Dec 21, 2018)

    Did I just watched a semester of science class in one video lmao

  • Butch Adriatic (Feb 19, 2019)

    No, and not even half of what a "coin boi" learns on day one, let alone an assistant or tech. LOL, Dont worry you'll get past the number 2 on those fingers eventually 🤣.(sorry, too easy to pass up 😬) ( Sorry! But I'm not sorry, " I'm the man from the hamburger train" 😲)

  • not cool (Dec 30, 2018)

    LetLetG engineering class!

  • sweetdrxps (Dec 20, 2018)

    4.3k Chuck E' Cheeses employees disliked this video.

  • George Nara (Feb 24, 2019)

    I dont thunk the employees would dis like the video all they do is make 7.25
